  Within sub-project H practical urban traffic management techniques shall be developed that city authorities can use to reduce traffic noise. The work package will take a holistic view of the policies and legislation used to manage traffic flow, and consider the interactions between traffic management and driver behaviour. It will also examine how systems for monitoring noise emissions from vehicles can play a role in traffic management. The objectives of Work Package H2 are the following. One important tool to reduce traffic noise is the identification of noisy vehicles in the vehicle fleet from the roadside. The development of measurement techniques needed for this identification is one of the main tasks of H2. These techniques will be developed in a way that they can be used as an enforcement and access control tool for local authorities to ensure the lowest appropriate noise levels from the vehicles operating in fleets under their direct or indirect control. Further tasks in this context are the evaluation of the interaction between access control systems and new systems for vehicle noise monitoring and control, the consideration of methods for implementing such methodologies and the assessment of the possibilities to use the noise emission monitoring for traffic management measures aiming at a reduction of the noise exposure.

The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
